catch a fire
two days ago, i went to see "catch a fire", a movie about a piece of history of South Africa in the apartheid era.
Apartheid (literally "apartness" in Afrikaans and Dutch) was a system of racial segregation that was enforced in South Africa from 1948 to 1994. South Africa had long since been ruled by whites and apartheid was designed to form a legal framework for continued economic and political dominance of the other races by people of European descent.
after seeing the movie, it made me realize how little i knew about people in Africa and how suffered they have been from the social and economic oppression by White people. there's a lot to learn from African people, especially in how they could forgive those Whites from the killings those people have caused in the last hundred years and then, move on as a real-united country with freedom and harmony in its full sense.
btw, on the other side, this is an example of attutudes that white people in South Africa have--NO APOLOGY, whatsoever.
